. my question is on religion. how big of a role does religion play in the overall aspect of terrorism. how big of a r ole has it played in the u.s.'s policy on counterterrorism? >>the question is what is the role of religion either from the terrorist perspective or the combating counterterrorism perspective. from the terrorist perspective what we have mostly found is that adherence from al qaeda broadly misinterpreted and taken extremist views and perverted islam as a religion to be able to coerce and otherwise control their followers in doing things that are very much what the tenants of islam would say. we quoted a scholar and others that talked about the prohibition of killing innocent civilians. when they talk about the majority of people being killed by al qaeda are muslims contradicted the religion of islam and pointed out they were violating the tenet. so in general, helping to highlight the perversion of the religion in terms of the information we are doing has been helpful and that is what was done with the deadly vanguards report. it identified the problems that al qaeda wa

a little distance -- >> ingloriously. >> these are people who cling to guns and their religion. he's not the guy to do this deal, joe biden is. the governor is right, when you get specific about things like high capacity magazines, people want them limited. there's no question. on general, if you state it generally, people are confused because they know it's a constitution right. but if you're specific, then the equation changes and that's what the vice president is going to try to do. >> ironically it's like pro-life and pro-gun. very ironic. it's a generalized statement. >> exactly. interestingly, originally joe biden was not going to report, was not going to make his case to the president until after the state of the union, until after -- excuse me, until after the inaugural address. i think they're moving up the schedule of this because i think the president is, in fact, going to feature it in -- he's going to mention it in the inaugural -- >> is this legacy material? >> this is legacy material. also, it's not money material. in other words, we're broke as a country. there's go
at the inauguration in my opinion. it would be more inclusive without it. sure, but i think religions should be taxed if they get involved in politics. like them or not, they have every right to be part of the process. give the dude the opportunity to put forth his ideas before you toast him. people learn and change. this from scott, i have no problem with the pastor speaking, although my opinion differs from his. i would welcome his presence at the speech. keep the conversation going facebook.com/carolcnn. >>> headaches, sleepless nights. bernie kosar former nfl quarterback has had them all after playing ball. now kosar says a new treatment has stopped his symptoms.  >>> as we got confirmation that junior seau did indeed suffer from the brain disease cte, another former nfl player who took multiple hits speaks with hope for his future. and we are talking about former browns quarterback bernie kosar. i hope the treatment he's getting really does work. >> yeah, so far it has given him great progress and i think that that's hope not only for bernie but for other players who might be suffering. b
of freedom of religion and separation of church and state. >> roger williams was the founder of rhode island, the founder of providence, and also a founder of the first baptist church in america. williams was going -- born in london. his birth records were burned up in the great london fire of 1666. he became a chaplain for one of the chiefs. because he was a puritan and the church was cracking down and putting his people in jail, he fled england. he arrived in boston in february. he believed the state had no role to play in religion. this was an absolutely radical idea at his time. every country in europe had a state church, so did massachusetts and the plymouth colony. they all had their own state- supported churches. the taxes of the people paid for the ministers and the buildings. you had to go to church or they would come and get you and fine you. williams said the state has no role whatsoever to play in religion. eventually, he was put on trial there and convicted of sedition and heresy and was going to be shipped back to england where he probably would have died. before they could exe

liberalism from liberals and religion from the religious. extremist-dominated debate where most people who are involved, who own guns, who might use them for sporting purposes aren't in favor of these assault weapons. they're not -- these things are made, these high-capacity magazines, these weapons, are made to simulate a kind of military-style engagement. here's my suggestion. anyone who wants to do that should volunteer to go join the military. >> ask wes moore about that. >> yeah. and go deal with that. so it's time for moderate people -- i own guns. it's time for people like me who own guns, who think that -- but think that the extremists have gone too far to actually take a stand on it. the second point -- and chris christie was making this point yesterday -- is it's not just about guns. and this goes to your question. it's about violence. and it's about the video games. and it's about culture. and that's not a bill. that's not a piece of legislation. it's a broad hour-to-hour household-to-household battle that requires parents, teachers, everyone to be engaged. and i think being eng
